[ applause ] [ cheering ] a cabinet secretary starting work, right? it's not your typical multiple network life news event. but hillary clinton was never just some cabinet secretary, right? well, today, four years later at the start of the second term of the obama administration it was a similar scene for hillary clinton as she said goodbye to the same state department employees from almost the same spot where they welcomed her four years ago. >> now it's my great honor to introduce one last time the 67th secretary of state of the united states of america, hillary rodham clinton.

a firm grip on who i would like to see take it. u.s. congressman edward markey is the most principled person i know in american politics. he's what spent his career standing up to the special interests, the polluters, the people who take advantage, the greedy. he has sat on legislative committees and seen the power of the special interests. and he, again and again as taken them on. markey is a committed believer in avoiding the dangers even of nuclear war, a believer of a safer, healthier environment. back in the '70s refused to buckle to the forces of selfishness and power. he is running for the seat once held by edward m. kennedy. what the kennedys have stood for in massachusetts. he supports women's rights to a t, and will make a great colleague to the courageous senator elizabeth warren. i'm tremendously proud to call him a free, i am thrilled that he now leads the democratic race for the senate nomination. i'm glad for the country that we have such fine americans ready to take up the task of leadership. markey's clean, he is strong, and he has the vision to make a powerful differ

deals with the world away from the u.s. military and toward u.s. diplomacy. to upscale our soft power capacity as a country so we have more options beyond just the option of force. this president did a lot to advance that idea simply by putting somebody as high profile as hillary clinton in the job of america's head diplomat. but the overall goal of upscaling state, upscaling diplomacy and development so they are right up there with defense, like she said today, that is widely regarded as a goal that is not yet realized. secretary clinton alluded to that fact today when she said she now plans to become an advocate for that cause from the outside. it is, frankly, easy to imagine that as the core for her return to public life and politics for hillary clinton at some point, but we shall see. the secretary also reflected today on how she is really leaving public life for the first time in a very long time. and she suggested that that might make her a little lonely. >> i am very proud to have been secretary of state. i will miss you. i will probably be dialing ops just to talk. >> dialing

to use that as a bargaining chip again. we saw how damaging bringing into question the credit worthyness of the government. the fight should not be should we pay the bill? >> there is an interesting question about in retrospect if republicans leveraging the debt limit to get a bill that cut spending by $1 to $2 trillion going forward whether that was worth it? they introduced liquidity risk. if you don't cut spending we're not going to vote for a debt limit increase. it worked. the president agreed to cut the spending by a significant amount. now, would you like that negotiation had resulted from not having made that threat? absolutely. but do you think it would have occurred? there's the difference. i would never be one to advocate that congress should not increase the debt limit. they should. when this came up in the summer of 2011 i wrote that and they put that in the pages of "the initial review." i was arguing against those who say let's look and creating a cash crunch. that is the wrong thing to do. congress has the ability to decide what they want to attach to the legislation. tha

tonight. good to have you with us tonight. folks, thanks for watching. a big thank you this evening to hk for finally saying what really needed to be said. today was clinton's final day as secretary of state. she begins her life as a private citizen tomorrow. and for now, she has nothing to lose politically. so when the associated press asked clinton about the republican lawmakers who grilled her on benghazi, this was the secretary's response. "they just will not live in an evidence-based world, and that's regrettable. it's regrettable for our political system and for the people who serve our government in very dangerous, difficult circumstances." amen to that. the president might not be able to call out republicans like this. democratic lawmakers certainly might not be able to do it, but hillary clinton has no fear of speaking the truth now that she is going to be a private citizen. her appearances in front of the congressional committees on benghazi, the investigation turned into a complete sham because of these lies. the most outrageous questions came from the most ridiculous sources.
